I feel like my company is dragging their feet because of reasons. It's always something new. This is both within my department and to other departments. My bosses have acknowledged that they know I won't be in the department long but just getting a promotion to the next level which I'm definitely qualified to be at is like pulling teeth. I already take on the additional responsibilities, so I want the pay bump to match. Also, I've had talks with other department heads and they have spoken with my manager too, about me joining their teams and how they really are impressed with my work. But the excuse is that they don't have the job open yet, blah blah blah.
I'm not very forward about this stuff, so should I be more forward? Btw if it's relevant, I've been at this company for more than 2.5 years and the company has more than 10k employees.
